COLOR POSTER STUDY
Last Saturday I demonstrated a color poster study for the morning and afternoon classes. The poster study is very useful because the practice helps us to learn to mix color and to translate what we are looking at to the painting surface. The color poster requires that we translate not just color but value as well. It should be small and again, fairly quick - although, I would not discourage you from spending some time on this exercise while you are learning about your palette. Take as long as you need, initially. When you do MANY of these studies you will become fast, proficient and expert. So, practice OFTEN!
"It is a splendid thing to live in the environment of great students. To have them in person about you if you can. If not in person, in their works. To live with them. Great students agree and disagree. They stir the waters." ~Robert Henri. The Art Spirit
